Team Marksy Chess Armies

Just a very short post today. I realised I had promised to post pictures of our DIY Chess Armies, and had never got around to it. 

So here it is. 

It was made very simply using various little figures glued onto a set of old (non-official) Connect4 pieces. It takes a while to remember which ones represent which chess piece, so we'll probably mark them in some way.

The kids love it. The board is the folding Kasparov set from Argos, which I highly recommend. It does come with it's own pieces but they just aren't as colourful as ours.
